FRIENDS Coffee Shop Central Perk to Open for One Month in NYC


If frequent reruns of the hit 90s sitcom FRIENDS just aren’t enough to get your fix of Ross and Rachel, Joey, Monica, Chandler and Phoebe, perhaps visiting Central Perk in New York City will do it for you. That’s right, FRIENDS fans, Warner Bros. Television Group, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Eight O’Clock Coffee are bringing Central Perk to the Big Apple.

The partnership is bringing a popup location to Manhattan in September. In addition to getting a cup of coffee and having a place to relax and enjoy some quality time with your, ahem, friends, fans will also get to partake in some other fun activities. The location will feature real props from the set of the hit sitcom, including that famous orange couch on which so many of the hilarious conversations between the stars took place.

While visiting the shop, fans will also get to drink their coffee while listening to recording of Phoebe singing her classic hits, including “Smelly Cat,” and others. While there, fans can participate in daily giveaways, contests and trivia games about the cast and their 10 years on television. The best part of this amazing venture being provided to fans? Gunther himself has made some time in his schedule to stop by the coffee shop to make an appearance.

If you’re interested in visiting this moment in time, you’ll want to visit 199 Lafayette Street, Manhattan. Central Perk will be available to fans for only one month. The coffee shop will open its doors September 17 and close them the following month on October 18. Fans who plan on visiting Central Perk can do so Monday to Friday from 8 am to 8 pm and from 10 am to 8 pm on weekends. There is no word yet as to whether or not any of the other cast members from FRIENDS will make an appearance.
